Book Review: Stormwalker

Stormwalker by Allyson James follows Janet Begay a young lady of Navajo descent who has been running away from her home and legacy. Janet is a Stormwalker, a being with strong earth magic that she inherited from her grandmother. She also carries within her very strong Beneath magic that she inherited from her mother whom she had never met until recently. Janet sits down in a diner and a young women sits down with her and claims to be her mother, or rather the carrier of the essence that is her mother. 
Janet learns that her mother has been using young women to seek out men to father a child that will ultimately be able to free her from Beneath. All the events in this book lead up to a grand show down between Janet and her mother.
Along for the ride was the god Coyote of the Navajo, Mick Burns a dragon who Janet has fallen in love with, and Nash Jones the Sheriff who possess a strange magical power of his own.

I really liked this book which is no surprise because I am a fan of paranormal urban fiction. I would give this book 4/5 stars because the author intimates that Janet is in search of herself and her place in the world but she continually allows others to tell her what to do and make her decisions for her. Overall a very good read and I would recommend it highly.

What have you guys been reading good lately? I need suggestions for good books.
